New York City Gay Men's Chorus is one of the oldest and possibly the most well-known chorus in the LGBTQ choral movement. NYCGMC's commitment to equality for LGBTQ citizens is matched by their commitment to fabulous singing, and their musicianship and professionalism has connected with audiences in all five boroughs as well as across the globe. Able to perform in a wide range of vocal styles, from classical to pop, jazz, gospel and Broadway, NYCGMC has worked with acclaimed talents in every genre: Marilyn Horne, Roberta Peters, Barbara Cook, Elaine Stritch, Stephen Sondheim, Kelli O'Hara, Carolee Carmello, Victoria Clark, Martha Wash, and Sia—to name just a few. NYCGMC performs three main concerts a year, and also runs the Connect program, a series of smaller concerts that aims to engage people outside of the concert hall in all corners of the New York City area.
